Student's Entrepreneurship Development Group (SEDG) at JSS Noida has beget quite a buzz since its launch on the 17th of February 2016, from witnessing many notable dignitaries fortifying this venture by their immense support to making headlines in the newspapers.
What is the Students Entrepreneurship Development Group, JSSATE Noida?
It’s a non-profit organization whose main objectives is to encourage students to leave behind the idea of being 'Employment Seekers' and rather advance towards being 'Employment Creators' by forging an entrepreneurship essence within the young minds . It is a host of workshops, speaker sessions and competitions for budding entrepreneurs along with expert guidance and consultancy so as to mould their raw ideas into fruitful ventures.
Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi Addressing the nation on the 69th Independence Day, said, "We are looking at systems for enabling start-ups. We must be number one in start-ups... Start-up India, Stand up India."
The budding entrepreneurs, at the present time, need proper guidance and there is a remarkable lack of any such means within their reach.To come up with this issue, the people at JSS Noida have come up with an idea of inducing an Entrepreneurship-Cell by the name of SEDG in collaboration with STEP (Science & Technology Entrepreneurs Park, Noida.)
The main objectives of STEP has been to promote entrepreneurship, innovation and competency development in the region.
JSSATE STEP has successfully incubated 69 start-ups of which 36 havegraduated and have collectively created more than 1120 jobs while generating revenues in excess of Rs. 90 crores.
SEDG and STEP, together have an aspiration to raise awareness amongst the youth about the broadening the scope of entrepreneurship and encouraging more and more people to direct towards this expanding and promising field.They are bound to stir the young minds with this diverse array of events that they have in store.
E-Socket , the main highlight of SEDG , serves as an interface to provide internship for students in various start-ups by organizing workshops and various talent discovering events to uncover the capabilities and to polish their skills and give them an insight in the industry.
E-Summit , the annual entrepreneurial summit, which will witness panel discussion and official consultation sessions for in-house entrepreneurs by many celebrated personalities to create awareness about entrepreneurship among students.
E-Talk, the frequent talk sessions, to provide an organized talk about anything and everything which the students interested in entrepreneurship would require and from there on guide them under expert supervision on every step.
The SEDG at JSSATE, Noida seems to have a promising road ahead . With all that it offers and the kind of support it is receiving it definitely will go on making a milestone of its own!
